Win Blogging Your Way e-course Seat

March 21, 2014

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today is my birthday, our book releases in the UK (and it’s already #1 on Amazon!), and we’ve just opened enrollment for our super fab e-course that kicks off in April for four weeks called Blogging Your Way. March is also a special month because I celebrate FIVE years of teaching Blogging Your Way since we launched this time in 2009! I can’t believe I’ve been teaching the web’s first e-course on blogging for so many years, an honor and delight to me. For each course, I invite different co-teachers and for the next one, we have Tina Fussell teaching alongside of us and she’ll cover everything from how to write a DIY post that gets shared to travel and fashion/lifestyle posts that will definitely get your readers attention. For the complete curriculum, click here.

Win Blogging Your Way e-course Seat

To celebrate all of this, I thought I’d host a lovely giveaway! To enter, all you need to do is tweet this post and say,

“I’ve entered to win a FREE seat in the Blogging Your Way e-course for Spring! You can too! http://tinyurl.com/bywcontest #bywstudents @decor8

If you don’t have a twitter account, this is a good chance to create one for free – twitter is such a terrific tool for bloggers to stay in touch. After you’ve tweeted, comment below to let me know that you’ve tweeted and also leave your twitter handle and mention why you want a seat. I will giveaway 3 FREE SPOTS ($149 value each) to the upcoming class (outlined here). These are not transferrable or redeemable for cash. If you’ve already registered and paid for this class, and you win, you will receive a full refund.

By the way… The above photos are from Tina, and are a great way for you to see just how talented she is (her blog is her own content – she styles and shoots it all!). I can’t wait to have her sharing her secrets with all of us. In this special class, Tina will give you a video tour of her studio space in Copenhagen. (first ever online!), too. If you love her blog and her style, you will LOVE learning from her in this class as she’ll show you how to create blog posts that range from travel to fashion and lifestyle. Space is limited, so if you want to register, please do so here.

I’m taking the day off, but I’ll see you all again on Monday with more Blogger’s Favorites posts, a new mommy update from me, a few of my favorite things and so much more! The winners of this contest will be announced on April 1st! Once it sells out, you won’t be able to register so please don’t delay. And remember, if you win this contest and you’ve registered already, you will receive a full refund.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Win Wohnideen Aus Dem Wahren Leben Book

December 10, 2013

Hello everyone! Are you ready to win a beautiful book during this special 3 day FLASH Giveaway? You only have between now and Thursday to enter to win this beautiful blogger book (only available in German)… So get hoppin’! Earlier this Autumn, my German publisher Callwey, published the first ever book written by a team of European design bloggers along with Petra Harms. I was asked to write the foreword and also write the section about storage and to shoot and include photos from my home for this project which I gladly did. The book, “Wohnideen Aus Dem Wahren Leben“, launched this past Fall and has been a real hit here in Germany. In the midst of moving, I’m trying to clear out extra books that I have so I’d like to giveaway 5 copies of this book (29.95€ value each) to 5 winners. I will sign and dedicate each copy, beneath my foreword, if you would like otherwise your copy will come shrink wrapped.

2. Then come back to this post and comment below with your email address, country, and twitter handle and of course, why you’d like a copy of this book. 

That’s it!

This contest is only open to those living in Europe and the UK since I don’t have time right now with my move and a baby on the way to fill out customs forms and ship overseas (sorry, guys). I will choose 5 winners at random on Thursday, December 12 at 5:00 pm GMT +1 time (I will close comments on this post at that time) and all books will ship on December 13, 14 and 16 (only on those dates – I cannot ship books after that so if you win, you need to send me your mailing address ASAP). This way, you can receive your copy in time for Christmas too!

GOOD LUCK!

Win Blog Boss e-course Seat

February 21, 2013

I thought I’d do a FLASH giveaway because I mentioned somewhere earlier this month that when I announced my upcoming e-course, Blog Boss, that I’d include a giveaway and I want to honor that! Irene already gave away one seat on her blog (the winner was Sonia Barrigas) and I found a winner for the mini contest I ran using Pinterest for my #bloghug hashtag party (Winner is: Jeanetta Gonzales), BUT I still want to giveaway THREE more seats! SO! Here goes!

Win Blog Boss e-course Seat

Enter to win one of three seats in the March 1-29, 2013 BLOG BOSS e-course. Enter to win by tweeting (or posting on Facebook) the following to help me spread the word, “Have You Heard About the new Blog Boss e-course!? http://decor8eclasses #blogboss”.

AND COMMENT below with a reason why you think BLOG BOSS would help you and your blog.

That’s it! If you do both of those things then you are officially entered and I’ll randomly choose a winner on February 25 (at noon GMT+1 time) and the THREE winners will be announced on decor8 on the same day. The winners will be notified by email. If you cannot take the class, you are not allowed to sell your spot or give it to another else outside of your family, so please do not register to win if you can’t take the class. These winning seats are ONLY for Blog Boss and cannot be transferred to future e-courses.

NOTE: If you’ve already registered and paid for Blog Boss, you will be reimbursed your tuition if you win this contest.

GOOD LUCK!

Name Our Workshop, Win My Book!

October 5, 2012

Hello friends! How are you doing today? Have you had a nice week? I’ve been busy but am doing well. I wrote a foreword for a new book coming out in the Spring, Happy Home: Everyday Magic for a Colorful Life by Charlotte Hedeman Gueniau, and I started working on the curriculum with my friend Steffi for a weekend workshop that we will have in my home studio space in December on the 8th and 9th in Hannover, Germany. AND WE NEED A NAME FOR IT! Help us, bloggers!

Name Our Workshop, Win My Book!

Can you help? I thought it would be fun to ask readers for a name. The workshop will be for those looking for inspiration and ideas for their blogs with a focus on beginning a new year with confidence, creativity and joy. I am teaming up with journalist and blogger, Steffi Luxat, from Ohhh Mhhh and together, we will lead you on an inspirational journey – we’ll visit some of my favorite places for inspiration locally, we’ll hang out in my home talking, sharing and eating, and we’ll do a little shopping together, too. It’s going to be all about love, joy, happiness, creativity, courage and finding your style and voice and then, communicating it with passion. What do you think, any names for this workshop pop into mind?

I tell you what, if we choose your name for my workshop, I’ll personally sign and send a copy of Decorate Workshop, my upcoming book, to you! It will be my gift to thank you for helping us finding a great day for our special retreat.

I will post registration details soon on this page – but if you want to come, please email me right away so I can reserve a ticket for you since we can only fit 14 people max and the workshop is for two days so you have to be available on December 8 & 9 for both full days. You can contact me if you are interested: holly at decor8blog.com.

In addition to planning our inspirational workshop for bloggers, I’ve been working on writing all of the lessons for my Blogging Your Way Boot Camp e-course that kicks off on Monday, October 8th. Students logged in today and are getting settled in, which is so exciting because I love the energy in our virtual classroom. In this class, I have guest teachers Jeanette Lunde from By Fryd and Nicole Balch from Making It Lovely and together, we will set your blogging hearts on fire! The focus is to get in good blogging shape so when 2013 rolls around, you can face a new year of blogging your way with confidence and courage, style and finesse. It’s my last online class for this year, though I’ll teach again in March/April online, but no two classes are identical so if you want to take Boot Camp, please click here to register because we only have a few seats left and will close registration on Sunday night, October 7th.

Okay so back to our blogging retreat in December – any ideas for a cute name anyone!? If we pick your name, you win a copy of Decorate Workshop and for some reason, if more than one of you have the same great name, we’ll pick the first person who commented with the idea to be fair, okay? Thank you all soooo much! Contest Ends October 10th!
